Great Beer
The Loose Moose is a lively bar in downtown Toronto favoured by locals and out-of-towners since 1989. Their fondness may have something to do with its beer selection. After all, with over 65 varieties on tap, repeat visits are kind of a given, especially for lovers of Canadian craft. Beer isn't the only thing we have to brag about. With inventive plates, generous portions and the cleanest taps in the city, this is a bar you’ll likely come back to — plan or no plan.


Private Dining

The Loose Moose is still partying, nearly three decades after launching onto the Toronto bar scene. With seating for more than 400 guests on both levels, it is the place to meet and make new friends, listen to live music, or catch the game.

We enjoy going to the moose before the blue jays game night. The food is always delicious and a good value. I love the many beer selections especially the Kona Larger. We have been at the Kona Brewing Company in Hawaii. This brings me back to the big island.
Staff is always friendly and we love the menu selections.

Excellent service, great food. The beer menu features a vast variety of styles at a reasonable cost. They also have an impressive whiskey selection.

Food was biggest disappointment.

Waitress brought flat pop & when I asked to replace with water she said the “carbonation machine isn’t great here” - why not say that up front?

Great venue. The food was delicious. The only negative for me was the noise level. I had difficulty hearing my friends conversation without yelling. Regardless, I will be happy to go back.

We were sat at a table that was waitressed by the bartender. BAD IDEA!! We waited to even be asked about drinks... she took the order and quickly ran back to the bar. No questioning if we wanted food. Came back 10 minutes later with our drinks and started to walk away when I had to stop her to ask her for an appetizer. By the time this comes out or drinks are empty, she grabs the empty glasses and walks away without asking about refills. Needless to say we asked for the check and went next door to eat.

Initially I really liked the restaurant based on its atmosphere for the game. Our Hostess was amazing and so sweet and always came by to ask us if we needed anything. However our mood was completely ruined during the game when the 'manager' I believe, white guy dark hair skinny, comes up to us and says he'll kick us out if we don't order food again since we do not drink. One, I understand you need to make revenue during a game specially if there's a line outside his point could have been made in a more respectful manner. Second, how am I supposed to order anything without a menu? He did not bring one he didn't ask us if we needed anything as soon as he approached us, nothing. Most bars ask you if you need anything and provide a menu and then asked you to order due to targets they need to meet for the night etc. Fire your manager and promote the hostess that was serving us. She was so professional and kind and we absolutely loved her four game six night. Mood killer during first period that manger sucks I should have just went to my reservation at Scadabush next door.

Service was great! Waitress was spot on.
Food lacked though. Had the shareable appetizer, fish n chips and buffalo chicken. Meh. Nibbled but really that was it.

A great vibe to catch up with friends and an even better place to catch the game with your friends. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and a decent food menu steps from Union is almost a no brainer. Loose Moose has your game or social needs ready to go

Found it very average. It was our Anniversary and we made a reservation and got put beside the servers drink station where it was very noisy. My seat looked out a window at the construction. Not a great experience.

Burgers were the best during a week in Canada and the restaurant provides a fun and energetic atmosphere. Music level was expected for a pub type restaurant but conversation not easy.

Service was by MANY people, I did not know who was looking after my table. Food did not taste good, and my beverage was the worst mixed drink I had ever had. I would not recommend and would never go back.

Although my experience was okay I do have to say the food was very good. What I was not impressed with was the amount of staff just standing around doing nothing and talking, texting etc. In an environment such as a restaurant this is very unprofessional.

I was also not impressed with the attitude of staff when I started I had a reservation and they sort of just brushed me off and had to make it work. Overall good food, but staffing needs alot of work.

Overall a good experience but the food has definitely been better. Deep fryer oil was past it’s prime and food was too dark and somewhat greasy.

The Menu has changed since the last time we were there. Not a good selection just basically bar munchies. We were there before going to the leafs game so it may have been a event menu.
Will look at menu before deciding to go back.
